The Rogersville shale enigma

Please note you are reading this forum's new Kentucky board.  Thank you.

Rogersville shale landowners:  BE VERY CAUTIOUS!!

Marcellus and Utica shale landowners will well recognize what is happening today in the Rogersville.  It's like 2006 and 2007 . . and earlier . . were for us.  The gas companies know stuff they are not about to reveal to in-the-Rogersville-shale landowners!!  There is a huge amount of mis-information being spread around.  Stories of failure and worthlessness abound . . but so do tales of great potential.  The gas companies will attempt to lease your land for peanuts, telling you the Rogersville is not yet a proven play.  They will use every trick in the book to get your name on that lease.

The Rogersville shale is in eastern Kentucky.  For those interested, there are huge numbers of references . . some very negative and others quite positive . . here:


Here is a map showing the extent of the Rogersville.  Note there are also significant elements of the play in southern West Virginia and in Virginia:
